Shape: Cylinder
Duration: 30-45 seconds
I viewed a pill shaped object with no wing span moving at a high rate of speed. Covering the distance of horizon to horizon in seconds.

On May 28 2012 at approximately 8pm my 12 year old son and I was in our front yard preparing to grill some hamburgers for dinner. My son asked me what an object was in the sky. I quickly looked and was in sure. It did not look like any type of airplane I had ever seen. It was a "pill" shaped object much like a Tylenol tablet. I would estimate it was at a high altitude much like a commercial airliner. There was no noticeable wing span visually or when I zoomed in with my phone camera.  When I noticed the object it was slightly above the tree line of my viewable horizon. I quickly took a picture of the object with my phone. The object was moving in a straight line but very rapidly and was hard to follow with my camera. I had only enough time to take a second picture before it was beyond my view on the opposite horizon. There was no sound or jet trail behind the object.  I have viewed many high altitude planes in my life but have never seem anything like this or moving that rapidly.  The pictures I took were with my IPhone 4s with an 8megapixel camera zoomed in as close as I could get.
